Can confirm log-in in fixed for me. Note though that had to log-in via Blender ID, then it would tell me ‘You’ve enabled two-factor use password to log-in’, and then it would give me the badge. Bit confusing but oh well.
I’m partially fond of this.
I like badges based on development participation as they can drive a motivation to participate and help find experienced developers but badges based on money donations may lead some people to look down on those who don’t own any, which is both unfair and dangerous. I personally refuse to own such badges whether I donated or not and I encourage others to do the same. Blender is made possible by the donations but it is free for good reasons too.
Yeah, I had to leave my previous user account on BA, because I didn´t logged (ever) with my blender ID // Cross-site reputation through badges, were this morning´s news…//. Now I need to re-post and re*count everything I did months ago. Please consider previous user account created with email accounts to be “validated” somehow using Blender ID. I know it´s asking too much on this (credential sensibility) issue, but I don´t want to waste my previous user account hard earned badges…
I don’t get your point; you could have just made sure both accounts used the same email address? Any way, I can also ‘merge’ your two accounts here on Blender Artists if you want. PM me if you want this.
@fsiddi this is an interesting point; perhaps you could give Blender ID users the option to not use badges?
